Bloomfield, NJ (PRWEB) December 19, 2013
As the temperature begins to drop, we begin to sneeze and sniffle. The lowering body temperature causes a decrease in our immune system’s response, making it easier for bacteria and viruses to live in our bodies.
In a recent blog post written by NJ Top Doc Michael Credico, he talks about the Boy Scout Motto and why we need to apply it to our daily regimen as Flu and cold season approaches.
"What is the Boy Scout Motto? That’s right…Be prepared! After 52 years of scouting that motto means more today than it did at the time of its origin. Being prepared means preparation in all things and at all times. It just doesn’t apply to helping little old ladies cross the street. How about this application… Be prepared for flu and cold season. What can you do? Take a few simple steps to be prepared?"
1. Start with sleep… the goal is 6-8 hours.
2. Minimize eating sugars and simple carbs.
3. Eat more fresh vegetables and fruits.
4. Reduce alcohol intake.
5. Reduce stress!!
6. Minimize exposure to chemicals.
7. Exercise, stretch and walk regularly 30 min. daily.
8. Stop smoking!
"All of these things can help synergistically improve your health and immune system,” says Dr. Credico. He continues: “In addition, help reduce the risk of infection and illness by eating properly and promote immune health with herbs and nutritional supplements such as, Echinacea, Immuplex for immune support, Andrographis Complex (one of the most powerful herbal formulas for acute infections, colds and flus) and holy basil or tulsi (for respiratory infections, fevers, digestive disorders and skin disease). These are just a few natural approaches to get ready for this cold and flu season. Call our office for more information and let us help you to “Be prepared”.
